I am using ubuntu for almost a year now and I want to ask a small question here.. You may think that this is a stupid question but I am asking it here because I haven't got any solution for this problem.. I have installed ubuntu 12.04 on my desktop. My problem is whenever I download anything on my system(I usually use firefox and transmission client for downloading purposes) it automatically gets saved in "Download" folder but I don't like this mess.I want my ubuntu to ask me for the location of download every time I download anything, so that everything is in its proper place..But I don't know how to do this..I don't want to use any download manager because it will create its own folders and will again mess up the things.. So please help me out guys!! Thanks in advanced!!
If using Firefox alone, do the following:
- Go to Edit -> Preferences
- Click the "General" tab (top left of the preferences box)
- Look to the "Downloads" section at the bottom, and change the setting from "Save files to Downloads" to "Always ask me where to save files".
- Click "Close".
It should now give you a dialogue box every time you download something, asking where you want to save each file individually.
it's in the firefox settings.
EDIT -> Preferences -> General
Downloads either save files to a spec. location (default /Downloads)
or always ask me where to save files
